When can evaluations be helpful?
If you have concerns about learning, attention and executive functioning, behavior, development, or social skills, an evaluation could be helpful to determine if there is an underlying disorder causing your concerns versus immaturity, lack of study skills, or typical developmental issues. Our evaluators have extensive experience evaluating learning disorders (dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia), attention (ADHD and ADD) and executive functioning disorders, giftedness, emotional and behavioral disorders (anxiety, depression, OCD, other mood disorders, and disruptive behavioral disorders), and Autism Spectrum disorders.
What can I expect?
The testing process typically starts with an initial intake session where the evaluator meets with you or your child to collect detailed background information relevant to your concerns. Following the intake session, testing session(s) will be scheduled to administer psychological, educational, social, emotional, and behavioral assessments as relevant. The length and number of tests sessions will be determined by schedules, age and attention span of your child, and the type and number of assessments needed to answer your referral questions. Finally, an interpretive feedback session will be scheduled to review the results of the evaluation and go over the personalized recommendations based on the evaluation data.
What will come out of an evaluation?
Testing will help to identify the underlying causes of learning, social, emotional, or behavioral problems. As a result of an evaluation, you will receive a comprehensive written evaluation report outlining and interpreting the results. The evaluation report will include any diagnoses that may be relevant. In addition, you will also be provided with personalized recommendations and a plan for moving forward based on the testing results.
